Nigeria’s Federation confident in Olympic team

The Nigeria Football Federation has charged the National U-23 side
to go all out for a convincing victory in this weekend’s second leg second round Olympic games qualifier against the Vijana Stars of Tanzania.

NFF Deputy General Secretary (Technical) Emmanuel Ikpeme gave the
charge on arrival at the Dream Team V Prestige Hotel camp.

“As you know I was with the team in Tanzania and I can confirm to you
that our team was better but they underrated the Vijana Stars. That’s
why I am here early because there is a need to charge the boys. We
have what it takes to beat this Tanzanians but we must not be
complacent,” Ikpeme stated.

He added “I am happy that the chief coach Austin Eguavoen and the
players know what is a stake and I want to believe that if Tanzania
were able to beat us one nil, I don’t see what stops us from canceling
that one goal and go ahead and win Saturday’s match.

“As a person I strongly believe in their capability individually and as a team so I
have no doubt what so ever that if they put their acts right, relax and put up their “A” game I see no reason why they would not over run the Vijana stars.”

Ikpeme was also full of praise for the Edo state government for the support they have given to the team and in extension the football Federation.

“I must use this opportunity to thank the governor, for all the support he has given to this team because his gesture has saved the Federation some huge financial burden which ordinarily we would not have had a choice but to pay for, so we are very grateful to the governor for putting us in this first class facility.”
